We commemorated Threatened Species Day by participating in the Threatened Species Bake-off! Threatened Species Day is held on the 7 September, the day the last known thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus) died while in captivity at Hobart Zoo in 1936. Currently, about 1700 flora and fauna species are facing the threat of extinction due to a range of processes including habitat fragmentation and destruction, competition with introduced species and much more.


Our talented Engenites got their baking gloves on and delivered a variety of delights in the Brisbane office. The baked goods included:


Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) – Endangered

Green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) – Vulnerable

Northern quoll (Dasyurus hallucatus) – Endangered

Silver bush daisy (Olearia pannosa subspecies pannosa) – Vulnerable

Eastern Underground Orchid (Rhizanthella slateri) – Endangered

Derwent River Seastar (Marginaster littoralis) – Critically Endangered
